    Panasonic DX-6000???

    Anyone have a geometry chart on this beastie? Its the 1987 model that I'm interested in.

    Also, any opinions, pro or con? It looks to have Tange tubing, probably Prestige. The Panasonic Virtual Museum has catalog pics of the bike, but they're too indistinct to show the geometry chart.

    Also, were these handmade or machine made in the Panasonic shops that made so many other late '80s bikes? I'm not a snob, just curious.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Raced Panasonic in the 80's

    Only the Team bikes were hand made, but the DX line was nothing to sneeze at.

    Typically 73x74 geometry (though I had one that was 74head and 74seat), they were butted frames and light enough to be competitive with anything in the day. My Team America and Europe I frame weights were 6.6lbs including fork, hs and bb.

    The DX was just under 7lbs, so not a big difference.

    Since I raced on Panasonic's for 3 years, my best racing days, I kind of favor them over my Pinarello and Masi I had back in the day. However, the Pina and Masi are worth a mint today while you can still find Panasonics for a deal today.

    Thanks. Was that a 73 head or seat angle?
